I am trying to share several file structures across two PC's in the same
workgroup through my Linksys wireless router. I have shared the files on the
source computer. When I go the Network window. I can see the source computer
as a resource, but when I try to log in, I keep getting the following error
message.

"Logon Unsuccessful: Windows is unable to log you on. Be sure that your
user name and password are correct."

I am certain that the user name and password are correct. I am entering the
Domain\User Name in the User Name field, but I keep getting the same error.
What am I missing?

Is the account in question activated for network access?

Is the server running Advanced File Sharing / Password Protected Sharing?

I've got exactly the same problem! :cry:

I have XP Pro SP2 on "source" computer, called "SUB" and Vista x86
Ultimate on "Main" computer. From "SUB" I can reach shared folders on
"MAIN", but not from the opposite: I can't get in from MAIN to SUB /
from Vista to XP. Connected both machines via LAN, Netgear router.

This is crazy...

Make sure no other security software blocks sharing. Or this search result
may help.

Vista cannot access othersVista can't access other computers. Can't browser
another XP computer Vista can't access XP Can't see any computers in the
Network ...

Thanx for the link.
On "SUB" there is a fresh Windows XP installed; built-in firewall off,
no antivirus or spyware installed.

I searched and searched, and finally found the answer to Vista not
seeing XP shared folders and vice-versa, even XP to XP in some cases.
It's on the XP machine, and it has to do with File Permissions. I know
this sounds stupid, but I tried EVERY trick that was out there (changing
Vista's Lan Manager back to v1, making the same user on each machine,
etc.) but this worked b-e-a-utifully for me.

It's all about WHO owns (not just has the rights to) the
folders/partition. I was silly and changed my user name months ago,
which threw XP into a "hidden tizzy." when I added a new Vista machine
to the works, the problem surfaced BIG TIME.

Solution: I created a new user w/admin priviledges. Then I rebooted and
logged in as the new user (necessary to make registry changes, etc.).
Then, I copied all of the old user's Desktop, Favorites, etc. into the
new account's folders to ensure I lost as little as necessary, because
I'm going to kill the old account.

Then, I went into the properties of EACH hard disc (from "My Computer")
and under Sharing, I added the new user with full access permissions
WITH subfolders, etc. selected. Then I went into the Security Tab, the
Advanced... button and made the new user the OWNER of the disk, again
WITH subfolders, etc. This can take some time... I did this, starting
with my two data discs and finishing with the Windows System disc. It
popped a few dialogue boxes asking if it was OK to assign the new user
rights to the hidden Windows folders...I OK'd it on all ocaissions.

I rebooted and logged in (confirming that the new user had all the
rights necessary), killed the old user account, rebooted, and VOILA! I
could log into it from Vista and suddenly XP could log into Vista, from
both Vista/XP sides using either UNC/IP addressing and administrative
(C$) or named shared priviledges.

This is an OLD Macintosh (circa 1995) trap/trick that occurs when the
owner's name is changed and pointers get smushed.
